Our client, a successful physical commodities trader with a focus on soft commodities (agri, food, oil and pharmaceuticals) is seeking a lawyer who can confidently lead the team’s commodities activities.

The position requires:

  • Experience in drafting/negotiating commodities sale & purchase agreements (container, bulk, tank)
  • Understanding of INCO terms, demurrage and quality & quantity claims 
  • General knowledge of charter parties
  • Experience with cargo claim (litigation/arbitration/P&I)
  • Experience in trade finance/credit insurance would be a benefit, but is not required

The legal team is an integral part of the business decisions and not merely an advisory function. We are looking for a mature candidate with the organisational intelligence and wish to progress into a managerial role within the group.

The group is young and ever evolving with an entrepreneurial approach to management and team culture. Hiring the right people and ensuring a good personal culture is key. The group operates in an open plan office to ensure constant sharing of information and to support a collegiate approach to management.

Experience of sub-Saharan Africa would be a plus.

The oil and oil products business is expected to expand in 2018.
